Frost window film is a window film that covers and protects windows, provides increased privacy and reduced heat transfer. Effectively reducing the amount of heat that penetrates to the structure’s interior, these commercial films are also quite decorative. Ultimate Window Tinting uses advanced film materials produced by Huper Optik for its commercial clients in Orlando, Florida and surrounding communities.
Decorative etched window films not only increase the energy efficiency of the windows themselves, they also provide privacy by darkening the inward view. Depending on the type of windows, the configuration of the interior space, and the desired appearance, several different window treatments are available. Unlike simple static cling film, these window cover films are long-lasting and can stand up to the effects of extreme temperature and pressure changes.
Frosted Window Film Decorating Options
Decorative window films are manufactured according to the type of window pane over which they will be installed. The primary concern is heat transfer reduction, something that is on every property owner’s mind. A large percentage of heat conducted into an indoor environment comes from the window areas. This results in higher air conditioning costs, something that property owners want to avoid.
Each film type has been carefully tested for efficiency when placed over a particular type of window glass. This means that the films can be graded according to their energy efficiency. The ISO9050 and ASHRAE standards for energy cost reductions are met or exceeded when the proper window cover film is applied to the appropriate glass pane.
Aside from the increased energy efficiency these commercial film products deliver, clients enjoy the wide choice of decorative styles. Everything from frost etched designs to total whiteout and blackout tones are available for purchase and installation. Whether it be an office facility that has a high degree of sun exposure, a restaurant that benefits from darkened panes, or a retail storefront that will look its best with frosted windows, Ultimate Window Tinting will design a customized installation package that is sure to please.
Commercial Frost Window Films
Single- and double-paned windows allow quite a bit of sunlight into a building’s exterior. This is good in terms of decreasing the amount of energy used for illumination, but the downside is high heat. Sunlight passes directly through glass, reflects off of an interior surface, and rebounds as longwave radiation. The glass itself absorbs shorter wavelengths and likewise distorts them into heat-producing rays. Not only does the glass begin to heat up, it also begins to transfer this heat via simple conduction into the interior.
Frost decoration window films solve this problem by deflecting a good portion of these high-energy rays, meaning that less energy transfer to the interior occurs. At the same time, they change the tint of the entire window pane, allowing in enough light without the problem of heat buildup. The polyester-based materials give the impression of fine etching work detailed into the panes. These frosted panes come in a variety of styles ranging from traditional etching and blast patterns to total shielding films that protect the windows by strengthening them.
White Out And Black Out Film Applications
Blackout films are particularly suited to single-pane window glass when privacy is the main concern. These film coatings absorb and deflect heat rays without much penetration of light into the interior environment.
Whiteout films are best suited to double-pane windows. Double panes have a central space that is filled with air or other gas. White films prevent this air-cushioned region from absorbing heat, making the entire window pane more energy-efficient.
Custom Installations With Savings In Mind
Huper Optik manufactures specialized film coatings for all commercial window film and commercial window tinting needs including Solar UV, anti-graffiti film, frost window film and safety and security film to name a few.
